Interesting Facts – Homer is a name traditionally assigned to the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, the two major epics of Greek antiquity. Nothing is known of Homer as an individual, and in fact it is a matter of controversy whether a single person can be said to have written both the Iliad and the Odyssey. Linguistic and historical evidence, however, suggests that the poems were composed in the Greek settlements on the west coast of Asia Minor sometime in the 8th Century B.C.. First minted in 1986

Interesting Facts –  Aristotle (384-322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and scientist, who shares with Plato and Socrates the distinction of being the most famous of the ancient philosophers. He was born at Stagira, in Macedonia, and at the age of 17 he moved to Athens to study at Plato’s Academy. He remained there for about 20 years, first as a student and then as a teacher, and then moved to Pella, the Macedonian capital, where he became tutor to the king’s young son Alexander, later known as Alexander the Great
